    Well, according to thinksecret, a recent build of 10.3.6 is being tested for "graphic intensive games", so i I figure the gfx drivers will improve our gaming performance. :rolleyes: :D

    They are also supposed to fix a couple problems with the new nVidia 6800 Ultra. There was a new developer seed - 7R24 - released yesterday. I'm thinking the 10.3.6 update will be out in 10 days, at most.

    He probably just uses command-shift-3 to capture shots.

    Yes, there will be several graphic card driver fixes in 10.3.6. Some will help WoW (yay!), others will fix problems with the 5200fx so people can play Homeworld 2, and other fixes for the 6800 Ultra.

    Just hope it's available soon.

    He's not wrong, but neither are you. Cmd+Shift+3 grabs the whole screen, while Cmd+Shift+4 lets you select an area by click-dragging.

    I don't think it was Blizzard excercising anything. I think it was a bunch of Mac using Apple, NVIDIA, and ATI employees playing WoW going "Ah, crap, these stupid bugs are affecting my playing time. We need to fix them!"
